While we wait for the next A-Rod drama, take a look at the gallery above of his most embarrassing moments. (click here for full-size gallery).
Take That, Thaumatodryinus Tuukkaraski
Earlier this week, we learned that an entomologist and Bruins fan discovered a new species of wasp and named it Thaumatodryinus Tuukkaraski after Boston goalie Tuuka Rask. Terminix is not happy about this development and has offered free bug-killing service for life to the next player who scores on the Bruins netminder.
Tale of the Tape History
While putting together a Tale of the Tape for the upcoming Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight, we stumbled across some vintage Tale of the Tape photos dating to 1923. So we made an Extra Mustard post about it. Things have changed a tad since Dempsey-Gibbons in 1923.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Voting ends this Wednesday's for AskMen's Top 99 Outstanding Women of 2015. I've never featured Sofia Vergara, which is pretty amazing considering she hasn't taken a cleavage-free photo yet this decade. She earns LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery).
Hulk Hogan and John Cena Visit Google
The two pro wrestling stars toured the campus, slept in the nap pod, rode a conference bike and nailed 35 workers in the head with steel chairs. Okay, I made up that last one but admit you laughed harder than you did when you watched The Internship.

The ESPN analyst spoke on the "Innovators and Adopters" panel at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference Friday and laid down his two keys to being a successful grade school coach. Not sure these tips would land him Sportsman of the Year award, but fourth grade hoops can be cutthroat.

This is one of my favorite all-time YouTube musical videos and is taken from Bob Dylan's 30th anniversary concert. I love how each singer (Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton and George Harrison) takes a verse and is seemingly better than the previous singer. Neil Young, however, wins MVP in my book for his guitar solo at the very end.
